View Full Version : Water having opposite effect?

07-09-2011, 10:01 AM
Usually I drink about 4-8 cups of water daily. I know thats not enough so i decided to start drinking more..
I just finished my 6th cup and I have never felt more disgusting in my life. Im super disgustingly horribly bloated, my stomach feels like its about to literally explode, and i can barely move. Im just laying here feeling so stuffed. I feel like a fat ass. What could be the cause of this? And how can I get rid of the bloat/feeling?

you probably don't need that much water, you're tiny.

but, try spreading it out more. that should help.

Don't drink it all at once, drink it throughout the day.

8 cups (half a gallon) is probably not a bad number for someone of your size! 4 on the other hand is not enough IMO.

When I first wake up I immediately start on my gallon by consuming 20-40 ounces! Sometimes I feel the same as you described, but I'll eat some fruit right after and feeling fine shortly after. When I first started carrying a gallon of water with me, I could not finish it. But, after getting used to it and constantly drinking... I sometimes wash down 1 1/2 a day!

As others said, the key is spreading the glasses out throughout the day and always a glass before a meal.

So, drink up it's good for you!

You're 96lbs; 8 cups of water is probably enough, and stop drinking it all at once, haha. Drink a cup or two with each meal or whenever you're thirsty. The bloated feeling will go away within about an hour...no big deal.

Wait it out. You'll feel and look fine in a couple of hours.

Drink when you are thirsty.

Drink when you are thirsty.

Eh. Sort of.

If I only drink water when I'm thirsty then I don't drink water. Something is wrong with my brain. Now hungry on the other hand.....it never ends.
